A few weeks ago I attended an Art Trade Show hosted by the Clackamas County Arts Alliance. Even though none of the displays grabbed my eye, I couldn’t escape the siren’s call to wander through their little shop of art supplies. I managed to resist many tempting treats, but somehow a pack of mulberry paper scraps kept calling to the few dollars I had in my pocket.
I’ve never worked with mulberry paper before and, to tell the truth, had no idea what I would do with it other than to open it up and organize all the little scraps by color (yes, my spice rack is alphabetized and my bookshelves are sorted by subject and author). As I was sorting, little blips of inspiration were lighting up in my head.
